Jaswant unanimous candidate of NDA: JD-U

Patna: JD(U) today said there were no differences within the NDA over the vice-presidential poll and BJP leader Jaswant Singh has been unanimously selected for the post. "Singh`s selection as a candidate for the post of vice- president was unanimous," party leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar told reporters on the sideline of his `Janata Darbar` programme here.
